We continue to track our next weather maker that will bring wet and stormy weather to the Tennessee Valley on Sunday. Some stronger storms are possible during the evening but the better dynamics for severe weather will stay to our north…as highlighted in orange with a ‘Moderate Risk' from the Storm Prediction Center.

The first round of wet weather will arrive during the morning and early afternoon hours. It will not be a complete wash out but some heavy rain is possible. Outside of any showers or storms, it will also be fairly windy with gusts up to 30 mph.

During the afternoon, the models are indicting a brief break in the wet weather and even showing some peeks of sunshine. If that is the case, that will help destabilize our atmosphere for the next round of showers and storms set to arrive during the evening.

To the side is a timeline for when the stronger storms will be pushing through from west to east, likely in a broken line of storms.

As mentioned before, the threat for severe weather remains low for our area but a few storms could contain gusty winds of 40-50mph and an isolated damaging wind gust of 60mph. Heavy rain will also accompany this but the line should be moving quickly enough to prevent any widespread flooding. The tornado threat is not zero but it is very, very low for the brief, weak spin up type.

We will continue to keep you updated on-air, online, and on your mobile device!
